  1. Excellent article, Michael! I decided two days ago to limit the days I check Facebook to those ending in zero. So, basically, I will check my account on the tenth, twentieth and thirtieth days of the month only. This will save me time plus also minimize the annoyance of posts that aren’t appealing to me. I don’t own a television, so that is not a concern. I do work in a workplace with different job tasks that prefer specific types of clothing, so I’m committed to buying only wardrobe items that fit, flatter and are designed to survive the laundry and last for several years. I’ve done no spend challenges in the past. I stopped eating snacks late last June. It’s easier to pack just a lunch for work and not have to think about morning and afternoon snacks. My pantry, by no means minimal, has so many options for meals. I’ve eaten out twice in restaurants over the past six months, by choice, not because of lack of meal planning. I’ve opted to hold off purchasing furniture for my guest bedroom. I may wait until a guest actually plans to visit and borrow or buy something simple. It is good to shop for the lives we have instead of the ones others advertise for us.

    1. Thanks, Rhea 🙂 What an interesting approach to dealing with social media. Great shares as usual. Thanks!
